Feel better for longer with Power Plate

Aligning fitness and healthcare as part of the wider health and wellbeing needs of the ageing population has never been more important.

When the NHS was founded in 1948, there was a 48 per cent mortality rate before the age of 65; that figure has now fallen to 14 per cent.

Furthermore, the number of people over 85 has doubled in the past three decades and by 2030, one in five people in England will be over 65 (Kings Fund).

Although many people do stay healthy, happy and independent as they get older, there’s mounting evidence that complex health conditions, disability and frailty will set in approaching retirement age and beyond.

Strengthening activities can prevent age-related natural decline in muscle mass and bone density.

The Department of Health’s physical activity guidelines recommend adults over 65 years old should aim to be active daily and achieve at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week, such as cycling or walking, in addition to strength exercises.

As a result, practitioners are turning to tools that enhance balance, promote movement and reduce the risk of falls among older patients.

Both whole body and targeted vibration offer easy to use and versatile movement solutions that can be seamlessly integrated to maintain fitness and mobility by stimulating natural reflexes, increasing muscle activation and improving circulation.

As a result, Power Plate is being increasingly embraced by health professionals. Its unique ability to train and stimulate the neurological and musculoskeletal systems is a significant breakthrough for individuals with chronic debilitating conditions and elderly individuals who’re prone to age-related concerns.

Power Plate offers numerous solutions for the home, clinical and care environments meeting the health, fitness and wellness needs of the population regardless of age, ability or agility.

Key health benefits of Power Plate, as well as improving quality of life for the ageing population, include independence, confidence and social interaction.

To find out more details about Power Plate equipment, head to its official website.
